Great cap with a few things that drive me nuts....
on March 31, 2014
After falling down while hiking, again I noticed I scratched my lens!!! Arrgggg the horror of it all!! Now my videos will come out crappy!! I went out and ordered a replacement lens and saw the lens cap! Great idea!! Added to my cart and placed order.
Cap came and went right on my camera. No more scratched lenses for me!!
Now for my reason for only 3 stars.... Its a great cap and really protects the lens but.. When I uncap it, the cap ends up swinging into my videos.. thats not gonna work... I put the string lower on my monopod mount and it still got in the way. I wrapped the chord around the screw and that works sometimes till it comes loose and gets in picture again!! I ended up taking it off while I shoot, put in pocket so I wont lose it and shoot like that... But, now I'm back where I started with no cap!!! Wish there was a way to attach it to the back of the camera out of the way.
Another problem with it is when I'm shooting on a rainy day (gotta love the rain forest in Hawaii), water will get on the inside of the cap, and when you put it back on camera, the water gets my lens wet. So every time I take cap off to shoot, I have to hopefully have a dry towel to wipe the lens off. Worse when you get mud in that cap... So, I wish they made it just a bit deeper so it doesn't touch the lens.
